IPL 2021: As he spoke to the broadcasters in the post-match PC minutes after defeating RCB by four wickets, KKR opener Shubman Gill seemed as assured as one can get. Many did not believe KKR would survive and enter the playoff stage, according to Gill, who has symbolised his team's comeback this season.
-Big win for us. When we were coming into the second leg not many gave us a chance of qualifying and getting to the playoffs. But the way everyone has played is tremendous and hopefully, we will carry on the good form. I didn-t have the best first leg in India but I knew that I was batting well and just a matter of spending time in the middle, that was the conversation with the coach,- said Gill.
KKR are now up against a formidable foe in Delhi Capitals who can be very dangerous with their bowling attack. The KKR youngster, however, felt that DC are a -balanced side.-
-They (DC) are a really balanced team as we see it and hopefully we will give another cracker of a game. This was our third match here and coming again here we know what to expect from this wicket and I think right now everyone is adjusted to how the pitch plays and the conditions. I think we would have an edge against the Delhi Capitals.-
On a wicket that was slowing down by the minute, KKR batted brilliantly in a modest chase earlier in the day. They had a fantastic middle over but slowed down when RCB brought in Mohammed Siraj and Harshal Patel, their top two pacers, during the live T20 match.
-The first powerplay was totally against us, but the way we came back with Varun and Sunny bowling in the middle overs was tremendous, getting those key wickets and building pressure on them.-
